4 year old preschool

We believe that children learn and develop by engaging in stimulating play based learning experiences.

Our 4 year old program is developed using careful observations of the individual strengths, needs and interests of each child. It is guided by the Early Years Fraework for Australia and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework which focuses on 5 key learning outcomes:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity
  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  4. Children are confident and involved learners
  5. Children are effective communicators
